CAS Ikat

Happy Monday All!  It's March Break here in my little corner of North America and I REALLY enjoyed having my husband and son home today from school!  I always look forward to this week in the course of the school year!  It's always a much needed break in the course of a long winter.  We often go down to South Carolina for the week to warm up and have some fun at the beach but this year we're in the middle of a big renovation project so we're sticking close to home.  I've been spending most of my time cleaning up drywall dust and reorganizing my cupboards so stamping is happening in small spurts.

A few days ago I started a project using this week's CAS - Colours and Sketches colours but just couldn't figure out how to make it work.  Then, this evening, I saw the Techno Stamper Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge and everything fell into place.....yay!  I love when that happens : )

Aren't these FABULOUS colours?!!!  Seriously, I've had the ink pads sitting out on my desk for about 3 days....calling to me....

I stamped this Eye-Catching Ikat pattern and used my Banners Framelits to cut it out 2 or 3 days ago but, as I mentioned above, I just couldn't figure out how I wanted to use it.  Here's the sketch that helped me out tonight....

Here is the resulting card....

And look!  I used Designer Series Paper again!  Woohoo!  This is the "Sweet Sorbet" DSP from the current Sale-a-bration brochure!  Only 3 more weeks to Sale-a-brate by the way : )  I had fun using my photopolymer stamps for this card too.  They are SO great!  I especially love that they don't fall off the acrylic blocks.

Here are the rest of the details:

Stamps:  Eye-Catching Ikat photopolymer stamps, Another Thank You photopolymer stamps, Wanderlust photopolymer stamps

Paper and Ink:  Perfect Plum, Elegant Eggplant, Summer Starfruit, Whisper White (White Craft Ink).

Other:  Chevron TIEF, Banners Framelits, Summer Starfruit Baker's Twine (Sale-a-bration Sweet Sorbet Accessories Pack ).

Happy Stamping!

2019-2020 In-Colour #2

Today’s In-Colour is “Rococo Rose”.  I love how delicate it is while still be fairly saturated.....does that make sense?  It’s a little like...
